Here’s something I never thought I’d see – Orange County Choppers building a superbike…sort of. Covered as part of the show American Choppers, a team that normally builds custom choppers came together to build a frankenbike of sorts. It looked like a stretched Yamaha R1, but was powered by a turbocharged V-Twin and was complemented by Brembo brakes, BST wheels, and Ohlins forks.
Hard to classify this bike (VIN: 1Z9RCV2G7CN170834), but it’s definitely different. I’m curious to see where the bidding goes…find it for sale in Miami, Florida with an unmet opening bid of $17,000
